Animation Magic was started in 1992 [1] and headed by Dale DeSharone, who left Spinnaker Software. Much of Spinnaker's former CD-i development group ended up there. [2]

Based in Gaithersburg, Maryland, United States, Animation Magic also had offices in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States (the Advanced Technical Group), and a wholly-owned subsidiary in St. Petersburg, Russia. The company was acquired by Capitol Multimedia in December 1994. [3]

DeSharone died of leukemia on February 5, 2008. [4]
